She was a relentless gale
storming through life !
She locked the door on humanity
And threw the keys afar.
Dare crawl close ? You pay
with ridicule and rancour –
For your courage and compassion.
Yet, here he was, looking for a friend
And would take no answer but “Yes.”
He carved around her brick walls
to pave a passage to her heart.
Her tantrums were met with smiles,
her whimsical silences with understanding.
With an open ear and eyes that saw far,
He healed her expertly , scar by scar.
Lining up the gap between
the key pins and driver pins,
he patiently picked her lock.
She wondered, how he knew
what she needed, all along.
Conspiratorially, he whispered
a truth that left her Exposed:
Those unable to call out for love,
Are the ones that need it the most !
